First Listen: Mary J. Blige makes us smile with "Only Love"

(July 16, 2018) It is impossible NOT to root for Mary J. Blige. An artist who, for more than two decades, has spoken to and for a generation of women, she has always made her new releases something to look forward to.

And as a woman who has had her own ups and downs with love, she comes out upbeat and sounding glorious on her new single, "Only Love." With an big Philly Soul opening derived from First Choice's "Doctor Love," the single gets listeners moving as Mary J preaches about the glory of love.

As she posted on social media, "I've been in the studio working on new music and was excited to share a little bit with you all. I had a year of so many ups and downs and have come out the other side with a renewed spirit and a fresh perspective. I'm entering  my next chapter with an open mind and heart. ONLY LOVE is where I am right now and I couldn't keep it to myself any longer!!! #sisterlove #onlylove"

Well, we're glad she shared! This is a great sound for the legendary artist, and gets us excited to hear more from her studio work. In the meantime, enjoy "Only Love."
